If the fuse keeps poping (burning out) than you have a short that needs to be fixed. The fuses are there so if a wire does short (grounds out), the fuse will blow instead of the wiring heating up and melting or catching on fire. If the fuse pops as soon as you turn the key on, what you need to do is have plenty of fuses, best thing to do is disconnect one item at a time -- ie unhook the wires going to the radio(unhook the wires straight from the fuse block, not at the back of the radio), put a fuse in and see if it pops, if it does than its not the radio, unhook the wires for the door locks(straight from the fuse block again), put a fuse in, see if it pops, etc. Once you find out which device is causing the problem than you might be able to trace the wiring down and find where it is burned or where its somehow been moved and is grounding out. If you cant find it by using a visual inspecting (eyeballing it), than you will need a test light to find the short, but that becomes a whole other answer for using a test light to find a short.
Check to see if the Neon stereo lights come on. If the radio lights up then there could be an internal problem or a problem with an external amplifier.
The instrument cluster lights have their own fuse. It's a 5 amp at the bottom center of the fuse block. When the lights are on, the radio draws lamp power from the instrument cluster. This allows you to dim the brightness of the radio display with the other internal lamps.
The room fuse powers the internal lights and radio and also the terrible beeping sound when the door is ajar.
A radio fuse might keep blowing if the radio itself needs an inline fuse in a 1997 Crown Victoria. It is possible that the radio and interior lights are not grounded properly. Installing an inline fuse between the radio and the fuse box may solve the problem of the fuse blowing.
Sounds like some kind of intermittent electrical short
If the other dash lights work then the back light bulb is probably bad. Depending on the radio model the dealer could stock the bulb. If it is the radio with an internal back light then the bulb is not replaceable by the consumer.
short in the wiring behind your aftermarket radio
It could be as simple as one corroded or dirty connection at the battery.
If you turn up your interior dashboard light settings, then the radio display will be brighter too. The radio dims to the setting for the dashboard when the lights are turned on.

my lights didn't go out.
THE LIGHTS ON THE RADIO ON THE LEFT SIDE ARE NOT LUMINATED. WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO FIX THIS PROBLEM?
Dash lights and tailights on many cars are fused together; someone tapped into this circuit for power to the radio and has caused a short. Unhook the power lead for the radio and splice it into its own circuit and the problem will go away. I hope this helps you. Mark
check the fuse on the wires on your radio, there is a separate wire for the display lights that should be wired to your dash lights
There may be an issue with the relay switch going to the radio lights. There may also be an issue with the fuse.
Cant you have to replace the entire radio
Cant you have to change the whole radio
Check your fuses - they are operated separately
Yes, under the dash
the dash and radio lights are supposed to dim when the headlights come on. Make sure you have the brightness of the dash lights turned up as much as possible.
